  2. @iip47c Hey dude, good question. Our pneumatic staple guns use staples from
    7/8 up to 2 inches to account for most sheer wall sizes (plywood usually)
    what is necessary is for 7/8 of the staple leg to be into the stud for
    fastening wire to the supporting structure. This necessary nailing or
    stapling gives the wall the needed structural strength per square inch to
    accommodate for the weight of the stucco. Improper nailing usually results
    in cracking. Have a groovy day! Kirk Giordano Plastering

  3. @iip47c Are you considering screws to attach the self furred wire? If so
    the only times this is permitted is with use over metal studs then it is
    necessary. As far as siding I usually do what the owner prefer myself. best

  4. @iip47c I have removed about as much stucco in the last 4 years of
    recession as I have in the 20 plus combined. I wish I could find a home
    where is comes off as easy. But seriously the staples on this home must
    have been in the field and not stapled as they should have been into the
    stud. Best wishes. Kirk Giordano plastering

  5. I have to say that while it’s a big improvement, caulking the paper to the
    fascia board without actually tucking it under makes me nervous. Do
    customers ever have you pull up the board and tuck the paper, as well as
    some flashing to fold over the outer surface, up under it? I’d be inclined
    to ask for this, or something similar. Would there be any reason, other
    than cost, not to do this?

  6. @lrd9999 Hey guy, with any project we apply the two layers of paper as high
    as possible then fuse the paper to whatever surface we have to stop at. If
    flanges, paper or wood can be lifted slightly with a cats paw, pry-bar or
    the the claw of a hammer it would make the job much easier for us. Best
    wishes and thank for the comment. kirk Giordano plastering

  8. Howdy BASICRESTORATION, thanks for the bone, we try and do the best we can
    with what we find in the field. Sometimes a wall looks fantastic when we
    tie in new to existing, and then sometime we get this sort of mess. All
    depends on the maintenance of the owner and previous owners. Best wishes
    with your restoration business and have a great day! Kirk Giordano

  9. Clorox solution? especially on porous gypsum does not work. Firstly, it is
    not EPA approved for disrupting spores because it is not effective.
    Secondly, the solution is mainly water, approximately 97%, which soaks into
    the porous surface and feeds the spores. The chlorine is used up on the
    surface and does not penetrate. In essence you are just giving any cultures
    a hair cut followed by a massive buffet. The worst part is your public
    video is promoting a technique and solution for killing mould that gives
    viewers false information especially when there can be serious health

    The wall is then covered up with the moisture inside and the homeowners
    believe that is the end of the problem. 

  10. man I miss plastering. your motivating me to go back to work. Its So nice
    to have this to watch while i get my health back. theres just not enough
    plasterers around. i would get lonely out there by myself after my dad

    offspring of plaster’ers like yourself. thanks again!!
